The Sociopolitical Crisis of Corona
Time & Location
About the Event
Last week, the Israeli government announced an ineffective lite lockdown. This week we see the highest rate of infection per capita and Israel will reenter a full lockdown. However, nothing is clear; decisions change daily, directives are leaked to the media then not followed through on, and ministers are openly fighting with one another. How can this be reality?
Join TINAU & Matan Sandler as we unpack the sociopolitical political reasons why Corona in Israel is both a public health and sociopolitical crisis- with very little end nor happy ending in sight. We will explore the economic, political, managerial, and psychological reasons Israel is in a multilayered state of emergency.
